SAILING AWAY
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
 
Intro: Cm - Abmaj7 - Cm - Abmaj7
 
Cm
Waiting at the water's edge
Watching all the ships
                    Eb                      Ab      Bb
As they are heading for the harbour wall,
          Cm           Abmaj7       Cm
I was just a boy,____ I was just a boy,
Abmaj7              Cm
Dreaming of the wide world,
Abmaj7              Cm
Dreaming of the wide world;
 
Watching as they disappear,
Reading out the names
Of all the places I have never been,
Looking out to sea, staring out to sea,
Dreaming of a wide world,
Dreaming of the wide world;
 
Cm    Fm            Cm
Ooh,______ ooh.
Bb                Eb          Ab
I wish I was sailing away,
Eb           A
Sailing away,
Eb           Ab  Bb    Cm
Sailing away, with you tonight,
Abmaj7      Cm
_____With you tonight;
 
Walking down another street,
Underneath the red lights,
I am watching where the shadows fall,
Looking at the girls,
Listening to the girls,
Dreaming of a new world,
Dreaming of that new world,
 
I wish I was sailing away,
Sailing away,
Sailing away, in your arms tonight,
In your arms tonight;
 
I wish I was sailing away,
Sailing away,
Sailing away, with you now,
Abmaj7         Cm      Cm - Abmaj7 - Cm - Abmaj7
______With you now...
